7 Wedding Dress Trends That Will Take Over In 2018

Here are some of the most fashion-forward looks brides will be sporting in 2018.

Power Shoulders

They’re not just for the boardroom any longer. Wide shoulders with fascinating and innovative detailing provide a highly appealing contrast to the flowing and feminine line of a wedding gown.

Wedding Jackets

If you like the wide shoulder trend but aren’t ready to commit to having them on your dress, there are plenty of wedding-ready jackets to choose from. It’s also an investment piece – you’ll be able to wear it over and over again!

High Necks

Here’s a neckline that will certainly age well. From elaborate Victorian and Edwardian-style lace collars to sheer and chic necks that are effortlessly wearable, the high-necked trend is timeless and alluring.

Cascading Ruffles

And if that’s not enough lady-of-the-manor chic for you, you can up the ante with frills galore. Equal parts whimsical and fashion forward, you can utilise ruffles as a dress detail or put them centre-forward as the star of the show.

3D Appliques

Three-dimensional details breathe fresh air into dress designs, packing major visual impact. With romantic flowers popping off an array of silhouettes, these dainty embellishments are lively, delicate, and whimsical.

Princess Capes

Live out your Disney princess dreams by topping off your wedding dress with a fabulous cape. Long, short and everything in between, capes were all over the Bridal Fashion Week runways, and we’re hoping to see lots of dramatic flourishes at weddings next year.

For the full royal treatment, we love the resurgence of corsets on the bridal runway. They accentuate the narrowest part of your body, adding subtle sex appeal whilst remaining totally tasteful.
